Abstract

Problem-based learning (PBL) is at the heart of all degree programmes at Aalborg University and is most often project-organized. Experience shows that it is a challenge to develop the competences necessary for students to carry out PBL and requires systematic reflection of the part of students. The PBL Exchange/stud platform is a web-based platform intended for sharing student reflections and experience concering problem-based learning. In this paper we describe PBL Exchange/stud and our experience with introducing it in guided interventions in degree programmes at Aalborg University. The main challenge faced with PBL Exchange/stud turned out to be that of building a stable community of student users.
